Unusual Tales #23 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Unusual Tales v1 #23, 1960 - A meekly accountant is suddenly transported to the 23rd planet of Lotan, where aliens introduce him to an imaginative new world. Colorful and textural, Steve Ditko's drawings are imaginative and almost playful. Alien citizens, spaceships and architecture are all visually engaging (see interior page below). While Ditko seems to spare no effort inside, the cover appropriates two of his story panels to save publishing costs. Other artists in this issue include Rocco Mastroserio. This is number 13 of 18 Unusual Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Unusual Tales issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
